Mistaken identity?

I am.
Because I breathe.
I don't know why,
But I understand.
I guess I know how,
But I never learned.
And I still am.

I am.
Because I speak.
I think I know why,
But it's hard to do.
I guess I make sense,
But no one notices.
And I still am.

I am.
Because I wonder.
I can't remember the first time,
But it was beautiful.
I seek solace in dreams,
But escape is always temporary.
And I still am.

I am.
Because I feel.
I have cried for fallen comrades,
But they have shunned my tears.
I am heartless and uncaring,
But people flock to me like cattle.
And still I am.

I am.
Because I want to be.
I willed myself on,
But kith and kin loved me to death.
I tried to break out,
But blood runs thick in the quagmire.
And still I am.

But who am I?
Am I who I think I am?
Or am I what you make me?
Do I believe in me?
Or am I a figment of your imagination?
Are you in my head?
Or is it you who looks back at me when I look in the mirror?

Am I?
